03:32 pm: Overheard At The Wright Houshold

Wright’s Writing Corner coming soon.

Meanwhile:

Juss: “Whose this Luna character? Why is she inportant enough to be in Harry Potter Clue? She’s not even in Griffindor!”

Mom: “Luna’s a lot of fun.”

Juss: “Why?”

Mom: “She’s loopy”

Juss: “Does Ron like her?”

Mom, baffled: “Ron…not particularly.”

Juss, who just heard the end of Harry Potter, Book One: “But Ron likes his hero Dumbledore because Dumbldor;s off his rocker. So if Luna’s off her rocker, why doesn’t he like her, too?”

Off topic:

So I finished Prospero in Hell 10 minutes ago.

I still need to cogitate on my reaction to the overall book--but I did have a question about the ending that I will couch in as unspoilery terms as possible.

I was upset about the ending for a few minutes, until something occurred to me--Was the ending of what Miranda accidentally did on the bridge explicitly a call back to what the Angel told her about her sin and weakness?

Did you get my answer to this that I wrote yesterday? I don't see it here. How really, really weird. Here it is again:

1) The demons have some control over their thoughts, particular, as they find out in the next book. So,basically, it is basically it is an attack by the enemy...but they do work through the person's vices...so her sin does play into it.

2) You can read the first (unedited) chapter of Book Three here: http://www.ljagilamplighter.com/works/prospero-daughter/837-2/

3) There was much discussion on where to put the bridge scene. Either it could go at the end of Book Two or at the beginning of Book Three. Eventually, it was decided that it just did not work at the beginning, it felt forced, so it went back into Book Two. Which is a shame, because it could have been nice to end with the victory over Abaddon and the family singing happily on the bridge.

Right. I was reading that, the happy singing...and then WHAM!

I was gobsmacked, but now after reflection, it makes a lot of sense for the event to occur.

Thanks for the link to the beginning of the third book, and I do look forward to reading it when its done and published...

The thing I said in my lost response...which I forgot when I rewrote it...was, had it been up to me, it would have all been one book and no cliffhanger.

I wonder if ebooks really take off if that will affect length considerations...allowing for much longer works. Both John and I would benefit from such a thing. ;-)

Glad to hear you weren't so alarmed that you don't want to read the rest. If it is any comfort, the final book does have a happy ending. ;-)

Luna is loopy, but she is also brave, loyal, and insightful.

I love her!

The conversation about Luna was much longer, including about how she notices strange things. I only recorded the funny part.

Me, too.

I even played a character based on her in a roleplaying game. She was called Luna Leapyear.

Juss is in a Harry Potter roleplaying game set in the time of Harry's son. One of his classmates is the Luna who is the daughter of Luna and Neville Longbottom. I accidentally introduced her as Luna Lovebottom...which really isn't right!!! But now Juss thinks that is her name.

Because Ron is off his rocker.
